Abstract

Several satellite systems have been recently proposed for provision of mobile and personal services via Low Earth Orbits (LEO) or Medium Earth Orbits (MEO). Comparison of different system alternatives is difficult due to the complex interaction between system elements. This paper concentrates on a comparison of LEOs and MEOs on the basis of a few important parameters that impact telecommunications service quality. The considered factors are coverage areas, handover times and link unavailability. The results of the analysis have been achieved for various study cases, selected among satellite systems recently presented in the literature.
